When I get asked about the most successful and interesting sound art releases of 2012 one that comes to my mind is madal öö by John Grzinich. When I was told by the artist that it almost went unpublished I felt intrigued to know more about it, so asked a few questions that he kindly offered to answer for Sonic Field.

Q. On madal öö you compiled recordings made during a two-year span that you captured on the twilight time. I wonder what kind of relation or connection was established between all this many individual moments on the put-together process of madal öö?
